What is a Turbo Trainer?
A turbo trainer (or bike trainer as they sometimes called) is a device that fits under the back wheel of your standard bike, effectively turning it into a stationary exercise bike. Turbo trainers are ideal for working out when the weather is bad outside, or they can be used as a warm up tool before a major cycle. Turbo trainers can even be used to supplement normal cycling for extra fitness, devising workouts to target specific goals, such as increasing power or interval training.

What is a Roller?
A bike roller is a device that consists of 3 rolling cylinders that you can cycle on indoors. As you pedal your back wheel rotates between the two back rollers and you front wheel sits and rotates against the front roller. Bike rollers are seen as more realistic compared to turbo trainers because you are completely free and it requires balance, core stability, and focus as you ride. Rollers are however trickier to master compared to turbo trainers. Click here to see rollers >>
